Hey Berks County. This is April Crossley, the owner of Berks County House Buyers and today we’re talking about the term as-is.
Yesterday I met with a seller and he was telling me how he was trying to clean everything out of his property. And he just went through a really bad medical emergency and is behind on some mortgage payments and had to move in with some family and has a lot of stress in his life. And he has a house full of stuff, because he lived there for many years. He actually grew up in that house and then bought the house from his parents and there’s just stuff everywhere. And he said, “I’m trying to clean out the stuff.” But he isn’t really feeling very well from his medical issues. So we talked about what it meant when we buy a house as-is.
At Berks County House Buyers, we’ve been purchasing properties for cash in Berks County since 2004. And when we say, we buy houses as-is, that means the condition they are currently in. It means that you don’t have to do any fix-up or any repair and you don’t even have to clean out the property. Where sellers get confused is when they’re looking to sell a home in Berks County, sometimes real estate agents will walk through and tell them, “If you fix this or fix that, or if you clean up this and a new homeowner’s going to want the house to be empty, then we can list the house on the market for you.” At Berks County House Buyers, because we buy cash, we are going to buy the house in any condition. It doesn’t matter how much stuff is in there or what you want to leave behind. It doesn’t matter what is broken and what might have to be fixed or how much clutter there is. As-is means anything.
We’ve purchased houses where the roof is falling apart or where part of the house is missing from a fire or we’ve purchased hoarder houses in Berks County. So as-is truly means as-is. You don’t have to fix-up anything or box-up anything. Now with that said, when you have a lot of things in your house in Berks County, we understand that sometimes you want to take those things with you and that’s okay too. We don’t rush anybody out of their home without their things. We give you plenty of time to pack up things from your home in Berks County and take them with you if you wish. In fact, a lot of times when we’re cleaning out houses in Berks County to get ready to renovate them, we’ll notice some sentimental items that an owner has left behind. We’ve found things from previous marriages or engagements or family albums. And we will actually reach back out to the homeowner in Berks County to try and contact them, to see if they want these items before we throw them away.
So in Berks County, if you have a home that’s in need of a lot of repair or the home has a lot of stuff in it and you want to just sell your home as-is, without doing anything. You don’t want to have to pack another thing, carry another box, fix anything else, we understand. It’s very overwhelming. You can leave that up to us. We buy houses cash in Berks County on your timeline. It doesn’t have to be a fast cash sale. It can be flexible. So if you say, “I want two weeks for my family to come in and filter through stuff in the house and take anything they want.” You are more than welcome to have two weeks or however long we determine it will take for you to do that so you can take sentimental items with you. Feel free to leave the rest behind. Leave the house falling apart, leave it in disrepair. We have the ability to look past all that and come in and make you a fair cash offer on your home in Berks County, as-is without you doing anything to it.
